THE WATCH OF DANDIES AND CHIC FEMALE URBANITES.

THE HISTORIQUES AMERICAN 1921 EPITOMISES THE BOLDNESS OF AN ERA AND THE TECHNICAL SOPHISTICATION OF A VACHERON CONSTANTIN CREATION. REINTERPRETED IN A 36.5 MM DIAMETER, THIS ICONIC 1920S MODEL ACQUIRES AN EVEN MORE STYLISH ALLURE. A CUSHION-SHAPED CASE IN 18K 5N PINK GOLD, A DISTINCTIVE DIAGONAL READ-OFF, AN OFF-CENTRED CROWN BETWEEN 1 AND 2 O’CLOCK: THE HISTORIQUES AMERICAN 1921 SMALL MODEL CONTINUES FLAUNTING ITS VINTAGE CREDENTIALS WHILE REMAINING TRUE TO ITS ORIGINAL AESTHETIC CODES. CLASSICAL YET QUIRKY.

FOR ALMOST 20 YEARS, THE HISTORIQUES COLLECTION HAS BEEN GIVING A NEW LEASE ON LIFE TO THE ICONS OF VACHERON CONSTANTIN’S TECHNICAL AND AESTHETIC HERITAGE. THIS RANGE COMPOSED OF LEGENDARY WATCHES REVISITED WITH A CONTEMPORARY TWIST IS PRODUCED IN MODEST QUANTITIES, IMPLICITLY EXTENDING A DISCREET INVITATION TO COLLECTORS OF RARE PIECES AND VINTAGE WATCH CONNOISSEURS. AMONG THESE CREATIVE ARCHETYPES IS A MUCH SOUGHT-AFTER ORIGINAL CREATION DESIGNED IN THE ROARING TWENTIES FOR THE AMERICAN MARKET AND ACCORDINGLY NAMED THE AMERICAN 1921. THIS AVANT-GARDE CUSHION-SHAPED WATCH STANDS OUT WITH ITS DIAGONAL DISPLAY AND ITS OFF-CENTRED CROWN. A FABLED MODEL NOW OFFERED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A SMALLER 36.5 MM SIZE.
